NewsLifeMedia and Woolworths have revealed the first digital edition of Woolworths’ free customer magazine Fresh, launching with the January/February issue.
The all-new Fresh tablet edition features an Australian first for food magazines with the ability to add recipe ingredients directly to Woolworths’ online shopping cart from within the magazine, allowing readers to shop wherever they are. The app also includes step-by-step recipe videos, bonus recipes and exclusive content. The new tablet app was created for Woolworths by NewsLifeMedia’s client publishing division.
More than 3.2 million Australians turn to Fresh magazine each month for their food and recipe inspiration, making it Australia’s most-read magazine ahead of Better Homes and Gardensand The Australian Women’s Weekly.
News Custom Content general manager Scott Williams said: “Fresh leads the way for supermarket magazines in this country with readers telling us that the family-friendly recipes, beautiful photography and focus on seasonality is the winning formula for their food inspiration.
“Our aim in launching the digital edition on tablet is to enhance that experience even further. We’ve created a tablet edition to excite readers with a range of features and utilities all designed to help them get the most out of their favourite magazine and make shopping and meal planning even easier.”
Woolworths’ Fresh magazine manager Nicky Harper said: “Each month Fresh magazine provides our customers with inspiring meal ideas, helpful hints and tips on fresh in season produce and exciting new products that are available in our stores.
